Dr. Kulvinder Kaur Gill’s disciplinary proceedings, initially slated for early 2024, have been dropped by the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario (CPSO).
Gill began expressing concerns about the harms caused by lockdowns and COVID-19-related public health measures on social media in 2020. A press release from The Democracy Fund (TDF) reads:
“As a result of her online advocacy, Dr. Gill has faced constant investigations and disciplinary actions by the CPSO since August of 2020, when she was the target of an online campaign by other doctors, media and members of the public to generate complaints against her. In total, there were seven public (non-patient) complaints made to the CPSO about her tweets, and a separate Registrar’s investigation was also initiated. All eight matters were considered by a committee of the CPSO, called the Inquiries, Complaints and Reports Committee (ICRC), on February 3, 2021.”
Lisa Bidly, the lawyer representing Gill, expressed concern that the CPSO’s investigation went so far.
“The top-down imposition of a singular unquestionable narrative, on pain of disciplinary proceedings, has been damaging not only to the doctors who advocated for evidence-based medicine and robust scientific debate about novel public health measures and their consequences, but it has also been damaging to the credibility of the institutions which imposed them,” Bildy stated on X (formerly Twitter).
TDF is assisting with the legal costs associated with the Gills case. As a registered Canadian charity, they are dedicated to advancing education and upholding constitutional rights, including providing Canadians whose civil liberties have been infringed upon by government and public policy with access to justice.
Rebel News will be following up with Bildy to garner additional insights.
